THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR ' F^om the N'orth Sea to the Oise river, a front of 120 miles, the Germans are withdrawing with more or leas haste before the driving thrusts of the British,.^French, Americans and Belgians. ^ With the Belgian coast clear to the Holland border, the allied armies are busy now pushing forward along the Beige-Dutch border and this morning reports showed that they had.reached �Watervleit, directly north of Ghent. The allies on Sunday had reached -within 10 miles of Ghent, and that city is due to fall into the hands of fhe allies within a day or two. The steady advance of the allies under King Albert is clearing hundreds ot quare miles of'Belgian territory, and ' freeing thousands of enslaved Belgians. , Further south-east ot Le Cateau, the British and .Americans are pushing forward, and the Sambre canal has been reached on a new front. The Germans are losing heavily in men and munitions In their rearward journey. It ia reported that 15,000 Germans were cut oft and driven across the Holland border, there to be interned. ' The German right wing is badly smashed, and whether the Huns will be able to stand on the Wotan III line will depend largely on -whether the allies can continue the drive on their left wing. .Meantime the world is awaiting with breathless interest the announcement pt the; new German^ note. Guesses as to its context are as numerous as the many^jplaces, from which the rumors are 'gent. The arrival of. the note in �Washington is expected this week, but the long.delay is evidence that the German^ authorities are -finding it hard to arrive at a suitable answer which will fitill leave the way open �fpr (grther hegotiationi. * ShQUld the German answer fail td bring results, it is stated that Austro-Hjjngary and Turkey may make an independent bid lor peace.

They want to run away, now that they see defeat In sight, but we njust punish them thA-pughly, for they have done not only a' lot of talking, but a lot of villiauous work. � "Six miles from Magrath," said Jfayor Bennion of Magrath at the Alberta Municipalities convention, "60,-OOO acres of land paid no school tax. It was bought some years ago tor 50 cents per acre and one-quarter ot It sold recenly at $40 per acre." A slttia-tion like That should not be allowed to exist. It is'fully time the government remedied it. Mayor Bennton is right in demanding that all land should be taxed tor school purposes. Among the books on the war forbidden by the authorities to be cir culated through the United Stales war libraries, the 'Winnipeg Free Press points out are two written by men who are now officers in the Un ited States army. The two men who occupy this anomalous position are E. L. Pox, a rather well-known maga zlne writer, and Geo. B. McClellan, ex-mayor of New York city. In the early days of the war both these worthies made trips through the Central Empires under Germa'h auspices and produced the books which are now banned as unfit for Unit^ States soldiers to read; although the men who wrote them now wear the uniform of the "United States army. into the noose, when by delay and manoeuvring he, or they, can accomplish the object. The delay caused by this, hcwever might bfi dangerous an'il the moral influence of it is bad, very bad. "1 am constrained to think the mayor should have Jurisdiction over the other departments, but at the same time tliis might bring about other dangers where the legislative and executive are one and the same person. Favors City Manager "To obviate the difficulties I have mentioned I think the city with advantage to itself could move forward to the managerial form of city government as they have it in Dayton, Ohio, or on lines approaching it as follows: 1. Three or five commissioners to be elected as the heads ^of departments, but without control. The commissioners to act as the legislative body only. ^ 2. These commissioners -wo'iild he required to appoint an executive head in the shape of a General Manager who would have absolute control ot the whole city management, and be responsible for the estimates, which could not be'changed'without, in the case of five elected, - comnjlssilpners, the consent.of four-fittbs of the commissioners, or in the case of ' three commissioners, ot two-thirds of the commissioners. 3. The commission.er3, pt, course^ would net be subject to the recall, or it so, not less than 50 per rent ot the' last vote cast should be required. "If the larger cost was the salary of the General Manager, there would be no objection to a larger number ot commissioners who would receive only a nominal salarj-. "This is only a very brief statement, but it is all that the space of my annual report will permit. However the Dayton plan is easily had in print and the study of it thereby made easy. This can only, at best, be a fuggestion. Bouquet to the Press "�'The public press, if not very Judicious, can be a very serious menace to the straight commission ^orm of government, - but it would be impotent, I think, in adverse influence with the Managerial form. "Legitimate and accurate criticism is very desirable and helps to stimii-late those in authority, but personal and spiteful criticism can have but one ot two results, -ivlthout accomplishing any good, either to drive the person from office or besmirch his personal character." -/- ROTECT RIGHTS (Continued trotn front page) (CoNTiNum mou Fitourr Paoxi The Calgary >:lljertan.'y^oronto Saturday Night, the'-Edmonton Bulletin and the Toronto "Telegram; in enjoying thennaelves at ih^ expense; ot the Canadian newspapermen, who accepted the-^Invitation dfthe British government to visit the'-war-front and to also observe the war effort of Great Britain, might at least be fair. All these papers have, published a report that certain itepis of expense in connection with the visit of this party to Ireland had been investigated by a special committee of the British House of Commons. Now the Canadian newspaper party never set toot on Irish soil and the British parliament had adjourned its sitting some weeks lie-tore the party left England.

Among the 14 terms ot peace which the president formulated at" that time, occurred the following: , "The peoples p'f .^lUstrla-Himgary whose places anaoiii^ the nationa -we wish to see safeguarded and assured, should be dccorded the freest opportunity ot autonomous development. "Since that sentence was written and uttered to -the confreres of the United States, the government of the United States has recognized that a state ot bellige'rency exists between the Czecho-Slovaks and the German and Austro-Hungarian empires and that the Ozecho-Slovak national coim-cil is a de facto belligerent of the German government, clothed -with proper authority to direct the military and political affairs'of the Czecho-Slovaks. � It has also recognized in tho fullest manner the justice of the nationalistic aspirationa of the Jugoslavs for freedom. "The president is, therefore, no longer at liberty to accept the mere 'autonomy" ot these peoples aa a basis ot peace, but is obliged to insist that they and not he shall he the Judges as to what action upon the part of the Austro-Hungarian government will satisfy their aspiratioja and their con-beptlon^f their rights and destiny as members of the family of nations.
